Israel will take part in every important international conference “whether Turkey likes it or not,” the government’s top representative to the Munich Security Conference, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz, said on Friday.

Steinitz was reacting to the Turkish foreign minister’s announcement hours earlier that he would skip the proceedings due to Israel’s participation.

“Israel wishes to express its astonishment over the Turkish decision,” Steinitz said.
